I know the origin and function of most of the icons, sceptres, and glyphs. I believe I have a far better explanation for many of these glyphs than Egyptology. For instance F46 to F50 were parts of chains. ...Not intestines!

In my interpretation there are NO ERRORS chiseled on the walls of tombs. None whatsoever. Egyptologists are continually finding errors in the writing and call it everything from scribal error to lack of the ability to use good grammar.
Indeed, In my interpretation there are virtually no errors of fact either. There are a couple of scientific errors in the PT caused by the way they learned about nature but they are inconsequential and one of them could turn out to be closer to the reality than modern geology.
Egyptologists believe they were wholly ignorant of modern science and their primitive knowledge was based on "trial and error". I believe it would be impossible to invent agriculture, cities, and pyramids using "trial and error". I believe superstition is necessarily a destructive force. It is the source of all fear and especially the fear of fear.

It appears the builders had a sense of humor and talked about using the water source as a toilet that launched it to heaven and that they could aim the water source to "trip" birds in mid-flight. This is fatal for birds and might account for the large numbers in the Tomb of the Birds and been a source. Anyone can read the passages themselves.
I think people should read the PT and quit taking expert opinion as gospel. Remember the real cultural context includes water and no ramps.
